Kucinich Sues House Cafeteria For Sandwich Wrap. Dennis Kucinich sues the Longworth House Office Building cafeteria over mishap. The Ohio congressman filed the suit against a number of companies that supply and run the eatery.
Dennis Kucinich bit into a "sandwich wrap" of some kind and hurt his teeth on an olive pit. The congressman claims he suffered "serious and permanent dental and oral injuries." In addition, he has sustained "other damages as well," including "suffering and loss of enjoyment."
According to the suit: "Said sandwich wrap was unwholesome and unfit for human consumption, in that it was represented to contain pitted olives, yet unknown to plaintiff contained an unpitted olive or olives which plaintiff did not reasonably expect to be present in the food prepared for him, and could not visually detect prior to consumption."
The Ohio congressman is seeking $150,000 in damages. A video surfaced on the web showing Kucinich talking on the floor of the house five days after the incident, and he seems fine. However, we shouldn't assume that he wasn't suffering from an acute loss of enjoyment as he addressed the House.
